I've been here about once a month for nearly the past year straight. It's one of two Hudson beer run stops I make.
First of all, the outside of this place just looks cool. Right next to their own cave (they have Halloween events in there) the building itself sort of feels like your in a cave. You enter in the front and procede to the small beer section in the back.
Service is good, no complaints. I usually get asked if I need help finding anything and most of the employees know a thing or two about beer.
Selection is great. Tons of stuff you can't get across the river and that is the only reason this place is great, pretty much. The singles wall is where I have on more than one occasion, snagged some great Barrel Aged Central Waters brews, and other treats.
Prices are reasonable, some are lower than Chicone's, some are higher. It really depends. I usually stop here first, take note of prices, head up the hill to Chicone's, purchase the cheaper beers there and go back down the hill to Casanova's and finish up there before heading home.

After appealing to locals for a trip to Hudson, WI my wife and I made the stop on a dreary Thursday. Parking was tough with all the snow and ice, but managed to get a vacated spot as soon as I turned in. Walked thru the door and immediately knew I was in the right spot. Wandered around a while before asking for help, couldn't understand the layout. Store help was confused at first as well, seems recent restock? Picked up a few lagers to take back tothe hotel and the wife found her favorite Zombie Killer beer. A few were warm, but were quickly cooled in the "chiller".
Coming from the land of "state store" systems, I yearn for a Casanova down the street where "everybody knows your name". Worth the stop if you cross the St. Claire river entering Wisconsin.

A little jaunt here on Thanksgiving day as just about all the MN stores are closed.
Loved the selections, tons of stuff CA natives could only dreamed about. I saw tons of stuff from New Glarus, Ale Asylum, Lucid, August Schell, Summit, Tyranena, Flat Earth, etc. They break 6-packs only on selected items, which was a bit inconvenient for me.
The other plus is that they do growler fills for superb beers. I brought my Bootleggers & Beachwood growlers & filled them up with Toppling Goliath Golden Nugget & CW Coffee Stout with insane reasonable prices without getting absurb interrogations. The service is straightforward & helpful. They will help you find the beers & answer questions without tapping into your life history.
Overall, I had a good experience here.

Visited on a Monday after work.
A – An old crowded liquor store. Can't beat the location – right across the state line from MN and thus an easy opportunity to pick up beers not distributed to MN (e.g. FFF and New Glarus)
Q - No reason to believe otherwise. Almost everything available cold.
S – Nice, friendly, helpful.
S – Very good selection bordering on great. Lots of singles available on imports and bombers. Less so for 12 oz bottles.
